Entrepreneur of the Year Hall of Fame
| LP Corporate :: 11/19/2014

Last week Jim Berlin, CEO and owner of Logistics Plus Inc., and Yuriy Ostapyak, director of global operations, both attended the EY Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Springs, CA where the annual EY Entrepreneur of the Year™ awards were presented. Jim and Yuriy both report that the conference was entertaining and inspirational and they brought back a lot of ideas learned and shared with fellow entrepreneurs at the conference.

The conference included many thoughtful and insightful presentations from well-known celebrities such as Ron Howard, Seth, Myers, Emmitt Smith, Jimmy Johnson, and David Robinson, as well as accomplished entrepreneurs such as Tony Hsieh (CEO for Zappos) and Patricia Woertz (CEO for Archer Daniels Midland Company). 

As a very entrepreneurial company in its own right, Logistics Plus would like to congratulate Mr. David Hung, CEO and founder of Medivation, one of biotech's greatest success stories, for taking home the "2014 EY Entrepreneur of the Year" award. We'd also like to congratulate the many regional winners and finalists for their extraordinary achievements.

Of course, Jim Berlin is no stranger to the EY Entrepreneur of the Year awards having won an award himself back in 2004 for the Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia Region. Jim is also a lifetime member of the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame, a truly well-earned distinction (see image below, which can be found on the www.ey.com website).

Logistics Plus Warehouse Virtual Tour
| LP Erie :: 11/17/2014

A new virtual tour of the Logistics Plus Inc. “Skinner Warehouse” is now available online through Google Maps. Local businesses interested in warehousing space can view the facility from various vantage points on the Google+ home page for the Erie, PA warehouse located at 337 West 12th Street. 

The facility has over 50,000 square feet of storage space and offers spacious offices, bulk and racked storage, an inventory control management system, overhead cranes, three recessed loading docks, and grade level doors with inside loading and unloading capabilities.

Warehouse Virtual Tour

Purchased by Logistics Plus a little over a year ago, the warehouse (formerly known as the Skinner Engine Company building) is one of many Logistics Plus warehouse locations across North America. The virtual tour can be found by searching for “Google+ Logistics Plus Skinner Warehouse” using Google.com (or simply click here).

One of the more unique tenants leasing space in the warehouse includes The Erie Airsoft Company which uses its space for indoor/outdoor airsoft recreational games. The rest of the facility is dedicated to traditional business warehousing and distribution needs. Part of the Logistics Plus formula for success with its warehousing services is its ability to help small businesses with simple, affordable solutions while simultaneously serving the complex distribution needs of larger companies.
